Machine vision is a dynamic field: STEMMER IMAGING and our suppliers are the world´s leading manufacturers for machine vision components and solutions, introducing many brand new developments several times a year.
Machine vision technology does not only achieve extraordinary results in industrial applications, it is also very useful in other areas. The following article shows some examples from the sporting world.
A new approach to manual PCB assembly verification has helped one manufacturer significantly improve the quality of boards it manufactures for use in car audio devices.
A self-contained camera system ensures that almost 50 components are correctly assembled before the boards move to the next stage.
Systems with an extremely high performance are required in order to inspect labels or other printed web goods and detect faults with 100% reliability at speeds of up to 350 metres per minute. AB Graphic produces such machines and in doing so uses imaging components from STEMMER IMAGING.
Bergader Privatkäserei, established in 1902, relies on state-of-the-art technology as well as traditional craftsmanship in the manufacture of its cheese specialities. A hyperspectral imaging system is being used for the first time for the packaging of the blue cheese ‘Bergader Edelpilz’.
With the new bonNDTinspect® system, Automation W+R enables the reliable assessment of surfaces that are to be bonded, painted or otherwise treated in subsequent process steps. The system is based on a patent held by Fraunhofer IFAM and machine vision components from STEMMER IMAGING.
Numerous international football stars such as Messi, Neymar and others have already tried to beat this goalkeeper from the penalty spot – mostly without success. Standing between the goalposts is not a human being, but RoboKeeper – probably the world's fastest goalkeeper.
High requirements for speed and accuracy make machine vision an ideal solution for quality control in the print and paper industries. The German company Roptec proves that this technology goes far beyond the mere production process. Their machine vision system is used for optical quality control in the handling of paper rolls.
Sophisticated technology for the pharmaceutical industry and the construction of machines in this sector are among the core competences of Harro Höfliger. Machine vision systems ensure reliable quality inspections at several points in a new plant for the packaging of painkillers.
For decades, Swiss company Hunkeler has set standards for the paper processing industry. With Mitsubishi Electric´s Line Scan Bars and STEMMER IMAGING as their machine vision partner, Hunkeler has now given a preview of future web inspection systems, integrated into their DP8 Dynamic Perforator.
Kiefel GmbH, which belongs to the Brückner Group, stocks up to 14,000 parts in its new high-bay system at its site in Freilassing with a storage area of around 1400 m² and a footprint of 120 m².
